‘Heaven’s Gate’ 30-Second Summary

Heaven’s Gate takes place in Wyoming, 1890. James Averill is the Sheriff of Johnson County which is a county that foreign immigrants mostly inhabit. For the wealthy cattle owners, they view the immigrant farmers as both a nuisance and hindrance to them gaining more land. This leads to the Wyoming Stock Growers Association declaring war on the poor farmers with the state’s blessing. The association quickly assembles an army of mercenaries, whom the U.S. Cavalry supports, to rid the state of these pests. While James Averill’s heart is with the immigrants, he’s unsure they can win the war.

    1. Thanks, Eddie! This is a film we could have kept talking about. I actually cut it a bit short so we didn’t go too long.
